Updated 5:21 pm CDT, Monday, April 15, 2019

KALAMA, Wash. (AP) Authorities on Monday identified the man they say killed a Washington state sheriff's deputy before being fatally shot by officers following a day-long manhunt.

The Cowlitz County coroner's office on Monday identified the suspect as Brian Dellaann Butts, 33, of Longview, in southwestern Washington.

The investigation into the killing continued Monday and Sheriff Brad Thurman said he could not provide details about a motive.

Butts was suspected of killing Cowlitz County Deputy Justin DeRosier on Saturday night as the officer examined a motorhome that was blocking a road in the small southwestern Washington city of Kalama. DeRosier, 29, had reported over police radio that someone was shooting at him.

4. He looks like many young men in rural America, exurban America, or suburban America.

The face of numbing poverty, bad drugs, limited prospects, and poor choices.

3. my hometown

This is my community. I watched the procession yesterday escorting Deputy DeRosier from Vancouver to Kelso. Incredibly sad. Tidbit of further info: This guy's half-brother killed the Rainier, OR police chief 8 years ago. Awful stuff.
